As Nicki Minaj’s fourth studio album glides closer to its release date the rapper continues to give the world good reason to anticipate it.

In an interview with her old friend DJ Whoo Kid, the entertainer revealed that the set will be classically Hip-Hop and how her fan base, The Kingdom, have inspired its stories.

She shared:

My fans are a different level of die-hard. I always feel like I gotta make them proud. I gotta go hard. I gotta impress them. They always waiting for me. That’s a blessing in itself.

I know it’s going to be my best body of work and I always love to be in real time, see my fans reacting to something. That’s what I’m looking forward to now. Obviously, I’m not telling them when my album is coming out, but I know that it’s gonna be amazing because I want to thank the people who’ve rocked with me for all of these years.

With just days separating Katy Perry‘s fans from her fifth studio album, ‘Witness,’ the singer’s promo charge can be expected to go into overdrive.  Her latest bid to build awareness of the project is the delivery of a behind the scenes look at the Migos-assisted ‘Bon Appetit,’ the second single from her forthcoming project.

Dishing on the themes and symbolism found throughout the visual, Perry continues to shove the song down music lovers’ throats  share the song with listeners worldwide with hopes of helping it exceed its current Billboard Hot 100 peak of #59.  Will this refreshed look refresh appetites for the tune?

‘Blow’ beauty Ke$ha suffered quite a blow to her ego last night when she was awkwardly denied a hug by famed comedian Jerry Seinfeld.   The actor/comic was on hand at last night’s “A Night of Laughter and Song” at the Kennedy Center, in Washington, D.C.

Working the red carpet, Seinfeld was interrupted in the middle of an interview by the chart-topping singer who asked him for a hug.  She was politely denied…repeatedly. As the video made its rounds, her fans – affectionately called #Animals – weren’t exactly pleased with the television star.  In fact, some even demanded he offer Ke$ha an apology while others hurled insults and threats…24 hours after the incident.

How do you feel?  Watch the video and weigh in:

TLC reminisce on the good ole days in the video for ‘Way Back’ – the lead single from their self-titled final album (due June 30th).

The chilled clip is notable in that it’s the group’s first visual in over 14-years. It’s also the premiere “look” at how donations to their much-discussed Kickstarter campaign are being used to fund their last campaign.

We’d say so far so good.

TLC’s days of high-octane choreography and being ‘CrazySexyCool’ may be in rearview, but cute songs and visuals like this serve as a great dessert to the satisfying main course that was their 90s peak.

Cop a gander of Rita Ora!

The multi-media maven covers the latest issue of Notion magazine.

Simple, chic, and sweet, the shoot forms part of the push for the 25-year-old’s brand new single ‘Your Song.’

Unwrapped last month, the Ed Sheeran production is the first taste of Ora’s Atlantic Records debut and her first global album (previous releases were limited to Europe).

A strong streaming performer across the globe, the track is enjoying the most success in the UK.

Indeed, as at writing, the Official UK Charts Company have revealed that ‘Your Song’ is on-course to climb to #9 on their tally. A feat which, if achieved, will see the release become her ninth top 10 – five of which are #1’s.

With the video shoot set for this Thursday, big things look likely for the song as summer approaches.
